Hydro Nation Scholars Programme – 2017 Review

New publication by Hydro Nation Scholar, Bas Buddendorf: Hydraulic Modelling of the Spatial and Temporal Variability in Atlantic Salmon Parr Habitat Availability in an Upland Stream

New publication by Hydro Nation Scholar, Bas Buddendorf: Hydraulic Modelling of the Spatial and Temporal Variability in Atlantic Salmon Parr Habitat Availability in an Upland Stream

Hydro Nation Scholar, Bas Buddendorf is co-author on a paper published in Science of the Total environment, entitled: Hydraulic Modelling of the Spatial and Temporal Variability in Atlantic Salmon Parr Habitat Availability in an Upland Stream. This paper with co-authorship from various academic institutions outlines how habitat for salmon parr is strongly influenced by flow regime and bed morphology, high resolution modelling is essential to characterize upland stream hydraulics, velocity is not a limiting factor for parr growth even in extreme years and how the proportion of usable habitat and discharge per unit width are exponentially related. This publication is available for free download.

New publication by Hydro Nation Scholar, Aaron Neill: Using Spatial-Stream-Network Models and Long-Term Data to Understand and Predict Dynamics of Faecal Contamination in a Mixed Land-Use Catchment

New publication by Hydro Nation Scholar, Aaron Neill: Using Spatial-Stream-Network Models and Long-Term Data to Understand and Predict Dynamics of Faecal Contamination in a Mixed Land-Use Catchment

Hydro Nation Scholar, Aaron Neill has just had a paper published in the Science of the Total Environment journal, entitled: Using Spatial-Stream-Network Models and Long-Term Data to Understand and Predict Dynamics of Faecal Contamination in a Mixed Land-Use Catchment. This paper highlights that a key challenge is to understand and predict catchment-scale faecal contamination, employing long-term E. coli data and novel use of spatial-stream-network models. This publication is available to view online.

New publication by Hydro Nation Scholar, Kathleen Stosch; Managing Multiple Catchment Demands for Sustainable Water Use and Ecosystem Service Provision

New publication by Hydro Nation Scholar, Kathleen Stosch; Managing Multiple Catchment Demands for Sustainable Water Use and Ecosystem Service Provision

Hydro Nation Scholar, Kathleen Stosch has just had a paper published in the Water journal, entitled: Managing Multiple Catchment Demands for Sustainable Water Use and Ecosystem Service Provision. This paper highlights that failure to recognise the complexity of interactions across ecosystem service provision can risk the loss of other key environmental and socioeconomic benefits from the natural capital of catchment systems. This publication is available to view here.

New publication by Hydro Nation Scholar, Bas Buddendorf: Spatio-Temporal Effects of River Regulation on Habitat Quality for Atlantic Salmon Fry

New publication by Hydro Nation Scholar, Bas Buddendorf: Spatio-Temporal Effects of River Regulation on Habitat Quality for Atlantic Salmon Fry

Hydro Nation Scholar, Bas Buddendorf has just had a paper published in the Ecological Inidicators journal, entitled: Spatio-Temporal Effects of River Regulation on Habitat Quality for Atlantic Salmon Fry. This paper demonstrates value of developing process based understanding of flow regime effects, that flow regulation effect on salmon fry habitat quality is spatio-temporally complex, that flow rules need to consider seasonal flow preferences of conservation species and that caution is needed when using discharge variability as habitat quality indicator. This publication is available to view on-line
